  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Houston's Colin Clark will miss this game, serving the final match of his three-match ban.
  • D.C. comes into this game riding a six-game unbeaten run, the club's best such streak in three years.
  • Chris Pontius scored the first hat trick of his professional career in D.C.'s 4-1 win against New York. He had scored two goals in a game twice previously.
  • With a win, the Dynamo will match the best record on an extended road trip to open an MLS season. The Columbus Crew took 11 points from their season-opening seven-game road trip to start 1999. The Dynamo have eight from the first five games of their seven-game road start.
  • Houston hasn't lost to D.C. United since a 1-0 defeat on April 4, 2009 at RFK Stadium.
